The Schat Family started its long line of bakers in Utrecht Holland in 1893. In 1950 Jacob (Jack) Reyer Schat Jr. made his way to Ellis Island and eventually, California. He was 17 years old. He joined the U.S. Army a year later and, in 1958, was able to sponsor his father, Jack Schat Sr., his mother Kine and three of his five siblings to the United States. The Schat Family came over in search of the American Dream.
Today members of the Schat’s Family continue to bake in Holland, Bishop, CA & Carson City, NV. Armed with the talents of a master baker and a do or die attitude, Jack Sr. made the name ‘Schat's synonymous with delicious baked goods. As popularity of the bakery grew throughout Southern California, the Family responded by building a 35,000 sq ft. wholesale bakery. Soon they were filling the shelves of Safeway, Vons, Boys, Certified and Albertsons Markets with over 35,000 loaves per day. Today the Schats continue to bake in Holland and Bishop.
